Summer Developmental Program
Summer 2013 (June 3 â€“ August 1) Thank you for your interest in the Summer Developmental Program at Delta State University. The DSU family sincerely hopes you will choose our campus to be your home-away-from-home for the next four years. The Summer Developmental Program (SDP) is a nine-week academic program designed for students who desire an alternate route to admission to a four-year university. At Delta State University, the SDP extends from Monday, June 3, 2013, through Thursday, August 1, 2013. To allow students time to check into their residence halls, the first day will begin at 9:00 a.m. Monday, June 3, 2013. Delta State will operate a four-day week (Monday â€“ Thursday) throughout the summer. The normal class day begins promptly at 8:00 a.m. and extends until 3:35 p.m. Each Tuesday, students will be required to stay until 4:30 p.m. to participate in orientation activities. If you choose to live in a residence hall during the summer program, you will need to contact our Department of Housing and Residence Life. A $50 deposit is required prior to room assignment for the upcoming summer. Our housing staff team, located in Bailey 108, will be glad to help you with your request. You may reach them at 662-846-4151.

As you see, you will need between $275 and $300 up front to purchase the books and supplies that are required for this program. You will not be able to wait on your financial aid to cover these items. Please plan accordingly. All students who will be attending the SDP must have all supplies and books when they report to room 309 in the Union Building promptly at 9:00 a.m. on Monday, June 3, 2013. The textbooks are available at the DSU Bookstore. The listed cost is an estimate of the cost of a new book. Please understand that if you choose to purchase your textbooks from another source, you are responsible for having the appropriate books. Additionally, since most of these are workbook style texts and you will be required to turn in pages from the texts, the textbooks you purchase cannot have writing in them. If you purchase used books from an online source, you are taking a risk of there being missing pages or pages with writing already on them.
If you have any further questions about the program, fees, or supplies, please do not hesitate to contact me. We look forward to seeing you Monday, June 3, 2013, at 9:00 a.m. in Union 309. Doug Johnson, Director 662-846-4654
